    So, the predominant Lucille Victim theories typically hinge around Glenn, Daryl, Abraham, and Michonne.

    ... So what about the unusual suspects?

    Let's just, for fun, examine why or how it could be any of the people we're *not* expecting.

    ... Has anyone actually thought it could be Sasha for instance? Or Rosita? Or what about less commonly thrown around names like Aaron and Eugene?

    Or what about the two considered the safest in the whole lot: Rick and Carl?

    How likely is it will be blind-sided by one of these victims?

    Ronny Haze, whom I follow on Youtube, said there's a possibility (a crack one for now) that Gabriel could have been captured during a sneak attack on ASZ and pulled at the last moment

    ugh... I don't even want to entertain this, tbh.
    Not even because I like the characters, and I like these characters, but they just aren't worth the cliffhanger and seven month wait... they really aren't.

    Gimple and Kirkman threw the gauntlet down and they promised a worthy premiere, if my brain serves me correctly (it may not in this case). I don't see that with any of them.

    Still, I wouldn't put anything past these damn writers. They might have Negan swing that bat so hard that it goes back in time to kill Silent Shumpert and call it "artistry" or some shizz-wazz.

    I actually think out of the least discussed suspects people are overlooking Maggie. Mainly because a lot of Glenn's foreshadowing could also be for her...especially his driving away and leaving her in the rear view. And her being positive they'd lose something. Plus, it would get rid of the baby too. Kill two people with one bat and all that jazz. I think she'd be far more likely to go than Michonne too because it wouldn't screw up the trajectory too much. Just shove Glenn in Hilltop with Enid....and ta da, you've got a remix of the comics! And I know people are like "but taking it like a champ is for a dude" but I think that's utter rubbish. I've said that about women in my day. Maybe that makes me sexist, IDK.

    But I don't really think it could be her. That's dumb as hell and I highly doubt TPTB would green light the graphic death of a pregnant chick, although Lori's death was pretty brutal. But at least she was doing it to save the baby so I guess that somehow makes it okay. But if we're talking crack theories for the sake of crack theories, I'd throw Maggie's name in before I considered Michonne, Rick, or Carl.

    Before the hard Darcille evidence starting popping up I was seriously leaning towards Maggie. I know everyone says "but they won't kill the pregnant girl" or "Negan won't kill a woman!" - but I still think there's a slim possibility it's her. Besides, Negan doesn't know Maggie is pregnant!


    Negan kills a woman (Holly) in the GN. Kirkman confirmed it. He's just only blatantly said that he's against rape. Never anything about killing females

    That's true. Plus they said it was twisted and dark, right? Well what's more twisted than bashing in the head of an expecting mother? A few other reasons I can't consider her seriously is because she isn't in the van. And also her hair. Which sounds dumb as fuck when I say it out loud but would they really go through the trouble of giving her a new do to look more like her comic counterpart just to kill her?

    Trust me, the hair is what I use to take Maggie off the table. I don't see them asking Lauren Cohan to cut it if she's just going to lose her job.

    (But I do think her new 'do is rather fetching :buttermilk:)

    It was not a bat to the head though and done off-panel. She was basically sent as a bomb to the ASZ since she was zombified

    I considered Maggie. It makes the most sense to me as a truly shocking death. And the only person in TF that symbolizes hope more than Maggie (and her unbron child) is Judith (or Carl), maybe. The hair doesn't bother me because it could be a red herring. Comic readers would think the haircut meant she is going to Hilltop, and I think LC would cut her hair for the show. She looks good this way. But I strongly believe AMC wouldn't allow them to kill a pregnant woman this way.

    I've considered Rosita and Sasha, but neither woman seems like they would matter to everyone. And, I think Negan would be attracted to all the women enough to want to keep them around.

    Before the finale aired, and before there was confirmation it would be a cliffhanger, I lost sleep believing AL had decided to leave the show and Rick would be Negan's victim. I never considered Carl because I believe Carl is the person that keeps Rick going.

    Right. But the point I was trying to make is that people will use "he won't kill a woman" as a set reason why I couldn't be Maggie (or Michonne or Rosita, frankly) when he has, in fact, killed a woman.

    I think he will kill a woman for sure, but batter their skull? Eh. I am not as convinced. Negan seems to have a soft-spot for women (dude has a harem), so I don't see him going to that extreme unless really pushed. But men? Yeah, I could see him getting a kick out of killing them.

    I feel 99.9% sure it is Aaron.
    Gimple shoved his character onto that RV just so he could be there to take the bat.

    Gimp should have taken out a heavy player like Glenn or Daryl. But I am almost sure he did not.

    This thread is bumming me out, ya'll.

    I'll go back to the dock, with my first class ticket in hand, and wait for S.S. Darcille.

    A-A-Ron is the only "unexpected" person I could see getting the bat, but if it's him I will laugh myself into a coma. :|
